Let me start by saying…HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! I know some of you may not celebrate this holiday, since you may not be from the US or live in the US, but for those of you who do, I wish you nothing but a wonderful and joyful day! I highly, highly enjoy Thanksgiving J. What’s not to love? Having more time to sleep in, having family around the house, getting excited for lunch/dinner plans, and thinking of all the yummy food that awaits ahead. I’m smiling big right now.

Today is the last day of my ‘7 Paleo Thanksgiving Recipes’ series (sad…should I do one of these for Christmas too?! Vote “yes” or “no” in the comments section below!)

I’ve decided to feature a colorful salad with nothing but delicious healthy stuff today! Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Cherries. YUM! You have no idea how much I’ve enjoyed this dish. I finished the entire recipe by myself in 2-3 days. No joke. Maybe I needed all these healthy nutrients and vitamins? Who knows, but the fact of the matter is, that every time I served myself this dish…I scarfed it down and had to go back for more. It is sweet and crunchy…best of both worlds. Just thinking about this recipe makes me, well, salivate!

    This sounds amazing! I have started doing Paleo, but went out of town twice in the last month ad it was awful; couldn’t find the right stuff to eat (dod my best) ad haven’t worked out for two weeks until yesterday! Glad to find your site has normal things to make! Some stuff is just too fancy…

    I just made this and it was just as delicious as it looked. I couldn’t figure out if you meant dried or frozen cherries but I used pomegranate seeds instead and they added a fun texture. What cherries did you use?

      I used sweet frozen cherries (make sure you thaw them before using!).
